For Dr. Seuss week, my students wrote about the places they want to go as a supplement to the book, Oh, the Places You’ll Go. Here is what one of my Kindergarteners wrote…
I found myself smiling from ear to ear. My heart was filled with so much warmth. “How sweet,” I thought! I gave her a big hug. She made my day. Then…
I happen to receive an email from her mom. When I replied to her email I also shared what Anna wrote that day:
“Today we watched Oh, the Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss and Anna wrote that she wants to be a teacher like Mrs. Keller! How sweet! She made me smile!”
Here is her reply back:
“I believe it, she plays pretend a lot at home and she often pretends to be you!”
Wow! Even outside of school Anna is thinking about me. I felt so honored! This is a moment I will always remember!
